When I learned that all the members of The (Truett) Cathy family all have life verses, I 1) thought it was a really good idea and 2) felt immense pressure to decide on mine. But, how would I choose ONE verse to symbolize, represent my whole life? In true ADHD form, when something seems too big or too overwhelming, you #squirrel, and forget about it.
Years and years later, Ben and I were 2nd grade small group leaders at our church, and our lesson was on encouraging others. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 “Therefore let us encourage one another and build each other up.”. That’s it! My life verse. It doesn’t represent who I AM but WHAT I want to do/be. In a world of darkness, differences, and separateness, I want to be an encourager, a builder-upper.
What’s your life verse? How did you discover it?
